News from your child's school art room

Dryden's Art Program-2nd Trimester News
from Mrs. Fuglestad
Thank you for taking a few moments to find out what has been happening in your child's art class. There is so much more learning going on than a glimpse in the hallways would show since we do so many digital extensions to our learning with our class set of iPads.

Augmented Reality in the Art Room
We had a chance to see book covers come to life with Augmented Reality in the art room with our Family Reading Night Seuss-Fest. Check it out here. Download and print my QR codes and make your copies of these Seuss titles come to life at home with the free EyeJack app.

We also had a GrinchFest the week before winter break where students had the chance to put themselves on the cover of a Dr. Seuss book using our green screen photo booth. GrinchFest 2019 - Dryden Art

Sharing our Art Program
I had the opportunity to share our art program with teachers, tech coaches, and administrators at the IDEA conference in Schaumburg. I wrote up this post with links to my presentations. Check it out! #IDEAcon 2020 - Dryden Art
